As for me, I'd much rather have a government that minded its own damn business. We got "government that cares" aplenty in the Clinton years. Our present "caring" government is spending its money on keeping private charitable organizations from getting into the disaster areas to help people. This is not atypical's the kind of thing that's routine whenever government tries to "help".

Government is good at two things...building roads and fighting wars. Anything else it tries, it inevitably screws up. And I'd much rather trust the levers of power in the hands of folks who know their own limitations and the limitations of the tools they're in charge of, than the kind of grand-design megalomaniacs who "care".
